Arm Yourself With Longinus And Hatsune Miku’s Leek In Phantasy Star Portable 2

By Spencer . August 13, 2010 . 6:00pm

Sega USA community manager Aaron Webber dropped us an e-mail and confirmed two more items for the US version of Phantasy Star Portable 2.

 

Item 1: The Lance of Longinus from Evangelion.

Item 2 (and sort of 3): Hatsune Miku’s leek. The dual saber leek is in the Western version of Phantasy Star Portable 2 as well. We’re still waiting on confirmation of Hatsune Miku’s outfit.

The English localized version of Phantasy Star Portable 2 also includes fan art, a cool Rappy poster and a stylish picture of Alis, instead of the Young Jump idols.

    Okay, I’m genuinely impressed that they managed to get the Lance of Longinus from Evangelion in there; granted it’s just in time for Funimation to start promoting Eva 2.0, but it still took phone calls outside of Sega. If you squint just right, you can see Sega starting to put some effort into localizations again. :) Now we just need the actual Hatsune Miku game… ;)

    I take this means we don’t get Asuka’s plugsuit too?

      As I recall, Sega was one of the primary sponsors of Evangelion from the beginning; the Saturn even has a cameo in one episode.

  • holyPaladin

    Yes Asuka and Miku!!

    Hope Sega to keep up the good work :D

  • karasuKumo

    Awesome! That lance is so cool :D Graphics look kinda bad though :| Even for a PSP game.

  • epy

    Nice. Hope we also get the Fate/stay Night costumes. Playing as Saber <3

      The F/SN costumes were in the E3 demo I believe

      • epy

        Awesome, nice to know.

    Just imagine a codegeass cameo of Karen, c2, and nanally’s outfits. There is so much, I don’t know about the customizable system of the game.

    Muweheheheh, can’t wait to use my Lance of Longinus.

    I wonder how strong leeks can be

      If wooden baseball bats can withstand hordes of zombies in Left 4 Dead 2, I’m sure leeks are impossibly strong.

    Hehe, when we interviewed Aaron Webber yesterday on SegaAddicts, I reminded him to let you know about this stuff. :)

      Oh wow, thanks for doing that!

      • Kris

        Any time! It doesn’t hurt that Ishaan had a question for me to ask the guy, that made me think of you guys. :)

      I listened to that a couple times – that was a great show! I don’t get chance to hang around the site, but I listen often ;)
      Webber is a great guest, too. He gives great insight on localization that I don’t hear about too often.

      • Kris

        Thanks for listening! We really appreciate it. :D

    Good job Sega. I’m going to forget most of your past atrocities once I get my hands on PSPortable 2. Now how about Shenmue or Virtua Fighter on portable?

    Asuka + Miku = FTW!!!

    YES, the Lance! Awesome~

    Having never watched Evangelion, I thought Longinus was gonna be the spear from Disgaea.

  • maxchain

    Sold!

    Where’s mah Ryo Hazuki Shenmue leather jacket and 80′s skinny jeans?

    They secured my purchase of this game when they devastated me by shutting down the PSU PC/PS2 servers. :(

    I shall rise again!

    Having the Lance of Longinus in a game don’t mean scrap unless the soundtrack starts blasting “Hallelujah” every time you use it.
